This song was composed by Bonnie Raitt and its lyrics are deeply sad but also beautiful. There are two “covers” that I love: one by Bon Iver (a WONDERFUL version with him playing piano and also singing a little part of Nick of Time) and another by Adele (whom I love to hear ALWAYS, of course).

I couldn’t say it better… But I don’t need to, the song can do it for me.



Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices
Inside my head

Lay down with me
Tell me no lies
Just hold me close
Don’t patronize

Don’t patronize me

‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t
Here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power
But you won’t
No, you won’t
‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t

I’ll close my eyes
Then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel
When you’re holding me

Morning will come
And I’ll do what’s right
Just give me till then
To give up this fight

And I will give up this fight

‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t
I can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t
Here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power
But you don’t
No, you don’t
I can’t make you love me
If you don’t

I found love, darling
I found love, darling
I found love, darling
I found love, darling, yeah
I found love, darling, darling..
Love in the nick of time
I found love, darling, yeah
Love in the nick of time

Já postamos essa música linda aqui. Mas hoje deu vontade de ouvir novamente, então escolhemos uma versão ao vivo, diferente da que usamos no outro post. Mas desta vez a sensação é completamente outra…

Interessante como algumas coisas podem mudar em um piscar de olhos! A falta de uns e a presença de outros pode alterar toda uma camada de impressões internas de um dia para o outro. Por mais céticas que sejamos em relação a qualquer coisa que envolva sentimentos, mudanças assim ainda nos surpreendem bastante.

Se cada um de nós prestasse mais atenção à maneira como lidamos com as situações e com os outros, talvez percebêssemos com que facilidade podemos destruir um afeto, que nos dedicam de todo o coração, com um simples gesto de menosprezo ou a completa falta de qualquer demonstração de que nos importamos (SE nos importamos, claro); ou como podemos despertar uma atenção e interesse que estavam adormecidos (ou que sequer existiam) no outro, com um pouco de cuidado e gentileza.

Ao olhar para nós mesmos com honestidade, talvez entendessemos que essas atitudes aparentemente “insignificantes” são como jogar uma moeda para o alto: somente quando a queda está completa, podemos descobrir qual lado caiu virado para cima.

Com um dos lados perde-se tudo; com o outro, pode-se ganhar algo inesperado e até, por vezes, surpreendente.


You’ve been on my mind
I grow fonder every day
Lose myself in time
Just thinking of your face
God only knows
Why it’s taken me so long
To let my doubts go
You’re the only one that I want


I don’t know why I’m scared
Cause I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word
I’ve imagined it all
You’ll never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine


I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
Promise I’m worth it
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile
Until the end starts


If I’ve been on your mind
You hang on every word I say
Lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name
Will I ever know
How it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me
Whichever road I choose, you’ll go?


I don’t know why I’m scared
Cause I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word
I’ve imagined it all
You’ll never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine


I dare you to let me be your
your one and only
I promise I’m worth it, mmm
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile
Until the end starts


I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart
Nobody’s pefect  (I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s pefect (I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s pefect (I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s pefect (I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it


So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worth it
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile
Until the end starts


Come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts… now!


…………
This is about someone I used to like, but I don’t anymore” (Adele)

Well, everything ends, specially those feelings that are despised by the ones that you truly like. It’s a relief, actually, that this can happen at some point. I just wish you hadn’t missed it, my dear, because of all that pride of yours. It’s sad but that’s how life goes… 

…..

……..

You’ve been on my mind,
I grow fonder every day,
Lose myself in time,
Just thinking of your face,
God only knows
why it’s taken me so long
to let my doubts go,
You’re the only one that I want,

I don’t know why I’m scared,
I’ve been here before,
Every feeling, every word,
I’ve imagined it all,
You’ll never know if you never try,
To forgive your past and simply be mine,

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only,
Promise I’m worth it,
To hold in your arms,
So come on and give me a chance,
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile,
Until the end starts

If I’ve been on your mind,
You hang on every word I say,
Lose yourself in time,
At the mention of my name,
Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close,
And have you tell me whichever road I choose, you’ll go?

I don’t know why I’m scared,
‘Cause I’ve been here before,
Every feeling, every word,
I’ve imagined it all,
You’ll never know if you never try,
To forgive your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only,
I promise I’m worth it, 
To hold in your arms,
So come on and give me a chance,
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile,
Until the end starts

I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart,
I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart,
Nobody’s pefect,
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart),
Trust me I’ve learned it,
Nobody’s pefect,
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart),
Trust me I’ve learned it,
Nobody’s pefect,
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart),
Trust me I’ve learned it,
Nobody’s pefect,
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart),
Trust me I’ve learned it,

So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only,
I promise I’m worth it,
To hold in your arms,
So come on and give me a chance,
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile,
Until the end starts,

Come on and give me a chance,
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile,
Until the end starts

Adele – Rolling In The Deep lyrics



There’s a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bringing me out the dark,

FINALLY, I CAN SEE YOU CRISTAL CLEAR,
Go ahead and sell me out and a I’ll lay your shit bare,
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you,
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do,

There’s a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bring me out the dark,

The scars of your love remind me of us,
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all,
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,
I can’t help feeling,

We could have had it all,   (You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
Rolling in the deep,  (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),
You had my heart inside of your hand,  (You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
And you played it to the beat,  (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),

Baby, I have no story to be told,
But I’ve heard one on you and I’m gonna make your head burn,
Think of me in the depths of your despair,
Make a home down there as mine sure won’t be shared,

The scars of your love remind me of us,  (You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all,  (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,  (You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
I can’t help feeling,  (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),

We could have had it all,  (You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
Rolling in the deep,  (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),
You had my heart inside of your hands,  (You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
And you played it to the beat,  (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),

Could have had it all,
Rolling in the deep,
You had my heart inside of your hands,
But you played it with a beating,

Throw your soul through every open door,
Count your blessings to find what you look for,
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold,
You’ll pay me back in kind and reap just what you’ve sown,

(You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
We could have had it all,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),
We could have had it all,
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
It all, it all, it all,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),

We could have had it all,
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
Rolling in the deep,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),
You had my heart inside of your hands,
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
And you played it to the beat,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),

Could have had it all,
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me),
Rolling in the deep,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep),
You had my heart inside of your hands,
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me),

But you played it,
You played it,
You played it,
You played it to the beat.
